The Anthem of the Gamer.

The World is Saved is a new epic song and anthem for video game fans. Made in the pixel-art style of SNES (Super Nintendo) cutscenes, this video was a collaborative effort from IGN's Podcast Beyond community. IGN's Ryan Clements pulled together a small team of volunteers to animate a video for Danny Wiessner's latest single. The video debuted at the end of the live recording of Podcast Beyond Episode 200, which can be viewed here:

Great Job

This brings back memories of when Oblivion came out. Reminds me of the good old days with a great RPG. And, this is what is going to happen when Skrym comes out. Great job, good music and good flash. Keep it up!

Well done guys.

Very well done. It's quite clear the amount of effort that went into this collaboration, and mostly very nice. The animation fits in very well with the music, and accents the melancholy mood quite nicely. I do have to admit that there were a few pictures that didn't seem to stand up to the rest of the artwork, but it was a minor detail.

Musically, I won't say much. As suggested below, a rhyming scheme might be a bit more effective.

All in all, a great collaboration and I recommend this to anyone else who's up at two in the morning.

Every gamer has lived this.

You nailed it, good job dude! I'm glad newgrounds front page isn't full of BS like always. Hope to see more of this.

Oh man, that's art.

Often people overestimate themselves with saying what they've created is an anthem.... but you got it right. I'm curious to how haters are going to try to complain about this work of neostalgic art.
